Jobs and recruiting site Glassdoor regularly shares interesting insights into employers, and has a new report out examining the gender pay gap. Based on its findings, the company is shining a light on on ten professions in which women earn less. These are as follows:

1. Computer Programmer (Women earn $0.72 for every $1.00 men earn)

2. Chef (Women earn $0.72 for every $1.00 men earn)

3. Dentist (Women earn $0.72 for every $1.00 men earn)

4. C-Suite (e.g.: CEOs, CFOs) (Women earn $0.72 for every $1.00 men earn)

5. Psychologist (Women earn $0.73 for every $1.00 men earn)

6. Pharmacist (Women earn $0.78 for every $1.00 men earn)

7. CAD Designer (Women earn $0.78 for every $1.00 men earn)

8. Physician (Women earn $0.82 for every $1.00 men earn)

9. Optician (Women earn $0.83 for every $1.00 men earn)

10. Pilot (Women earn $0.84 for every $1.00 men earn)

"Here at Glassdoor, we believe in equal pay for equal work and also provide a platform for employers who want to pledge their commitment to equitable pay practices," the Glassdoor team says in a blog post. "More than 1,700 employers to date have pledged to pay women and men equally for equal work and experience."

Glassdoor also identified 10 jobs in which women earn about the same as men (Event Coordinator, Logistics Manager, Food Services Professional, Internal Medicine Resident, Technical Coordinator, Supply Chain Specialist, Academic Counselor, Clinical Dietician, Field Services, Professional, Hardware Engineer) and 10 in which women earn more than man (Social Worker, Merchandiser, Research Assistant, Purchasing Specialist, Physician Advisor, Communications Associate, Social Media Professional, Health Educator, Procurement Professional, Business Coordinator).

It's worth noting the gap isn't nearly as wide in the professions in which women earn more compared to those in which men do. You can look at the relevant numbers here.
